Luxury Villas in Sorrento

Luxury Villas > Italy > Sorrento

With picture-perfect views of Naples and Mt Vesuvius, hidden lemon groves and squares brimming with trattorias and osterias, Sorrento is a beautiful Italian town with plenty to do when on a luxury villa holiday in Italy.

Sorrento Region Guide

Stroll along the cobblestone streets and you will struggle to not pop into antique and craft shops or a cafe for a light refreshment. Pizza and seafood are a speciality here! And if you fancy a dip in the sea, your luxury villa is never far from the water at Marina Grande or the beach clubs of Marina Piccola. There is nothing quite like swimming beneath the dramatic cliffs.

Basic Information About Sorrento

Since it became an unmissable stop on the Grand Tour, Sorrento has been a place people have come to soak up culture and atmosphere in equal quantities and there are some fantastic luxury villas to match its grandeur.


Yes, it’s an ideal base from which to discover the ancient sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii as well as the pretty towns of the Amalfi coast such as Positano and Amalfi itself, but Sorrento should not be overlooked as a luxury villa holiday destination in itself.


With beautiful narrow, winding streets to explore, Renaissance squares and churches and the sunny harbour, there’s plenty to busy yourself with and plenty of opportunities to relax, too.


Whether you’re sitting watching the world go by in Piazza Tasso, bustling with craftspeople, enjoying local delicacies in bars and restaurants, or finding a little peace in the Basilica di St Antonio and exploring its wonderful crypt, not a moment is ever wasted here.


When to Visit Sorrento

July and August are pleasantly warm in Sorrento as its coastal location means it is never too hot, but perhaps the nicest time to visit is June or September when it’s less crowded and still lovely and warm.


What We Love About Sorrento

We love pulling into the Marina Grande after a quick boat trip out to Capri and spending the early evening bar-hopping and people-watching with a view of the sea.


Getting to Sorrento

The nearest airport is at Naples, just over an hour’s drive from Sorrento. Trains also run to Sorrento from Naples.


Best Places To Eat and Drink in Sorrento

y can’t go wrong when it comes to eating and drinking in this part of Italy. Food is at the heart of society here. The area is known for its lemons, seafood and pizza in particular. There’s hot competition between restaurants as to who serves the perfect pizza!


However, there’s also a booming gourmet food scene and you’re certain to enjoy some exquisite meals while you’re here whether dining out or in the comfort of your luxury villa with a private chef.


For a rustic but delicious seafood experience, head to Soul and Fish on the marina. More upmarket and with its own wonderful outlook is the Michelin-starred Terrazza Bosquet at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria, a gourmet restaurant that serves, amongst other things, a range of citrus-based dishes, using fruit from the hotel’s own orange grove.


A little out of town but absolutely not to be missed whilst on a luxury villa holiday here, is The Restaurant at Don Alfonso 1890 in the village of Sant Agatha, a 20-minute drive away. The restaurant serves modern twists on traditional Sorrento and Amalfi coast favourites and has a fabulous wine cellar and an ageing room for cheese – thoroughly earning its two Michelin stars and Relais and Chateaux accreditation.
